Tommy Robertson was once a king.
As a child, he and his three friends found their way to a magical elfin world and saved it from the Winter King.
Now a grown man successful in the world, Tommy has all but forgotten his childish adventures. He hasn’t even spoken to those friends in years.
Then a silver key and a black cat show up on his front porch, and Tommy starts to remember. Just because he grew up and left Faerie behind doesn’t mean that Faerie is finished with him.
Tommy is called to be the hero of England, and for that, he wants his friends at his side. But the real world has weighed them down and they are no longer the children he remembers. And evil things from childhood stories grow older and darker and more frightening with the passing of the years.
One Bright Star to Guide Them begins where other fairy tales end.
Can Tommy remember the courageous boy he once was, and set aside grown-up things to be a child again to save England? Or will the weight of the world prove to be too much for him and his friends?

Too Christian for Mainstream Publishing, Too Secular For Christian Publishing.
We occupy the space between both. Life isn't simple or free of trials, so why should fiction be?
We're not a "Christian Publisher". You'll find no limp-wristed, sanitized and boring fiction meant to browbeat readers into conversion.
Harkening back to Lewis, Tolkien, we aren't afraid to express our beliefs in the context of the story while keeping the creativity and wonder of speculative fiction. Faith has real power, in our world and in our books, and ignoring or being condescending about it leaves an entire facet of the human condition on the table.
There is no victory without trial, no dawn without night, and to write without that produces flat and uninspiring stories.
So if you're tired of nihilistic fantasy that revels in the worst of humanity, science fiction without the hope and wonder, adventure stories without heroes, Silver Empire is the publisher for you.
